    What would you charge for goose eggs to customers to be used primarily for baking?

    What would you charge for duck eggs to these same customers?

    Would you make sure you had no gander present in order to sell to this type of market or wouldn't you worry about fertilzed/unfertilized as long as the eggs are gathered daily?

    Thanks.

    For duck eggs I'd charge double what you are currently charging for chicken eggs. You can get away with charging less than that if you want, but duck eggs are hailed as better for cooking and are larger.

    Goose eggs for cooking...I have no idea. Definitely more expensive than duck eggs since geese are seasonal layers - you need to make sure that the geese are paying for themselves. Goose eggs are also at _least_ twice as large as duck eggs, so bare minimum would be twice the cost of duck eggs, if not a little more.
